Apparently praising your kids too much is a bad thing. It demotivates them, tunes them out and probably has them saying my favourite 'whatever' quicker than you can say 'good girl!'.
Now, I am pretty sure I praised my seven year old daughter with great enthusiasm yesterday for going to the toilet to do a wee... so we can safely say I am guilty of over-praising.
I investigated the possible aliments inflicted for my lastest post on Village Voices. Come say hi.
